My dyson dc08 has a loss of suction. A flap valve operates within a few seconds of startup which appears to divert air. I have replaced both the hepa and sponge filters but the problem persists. If there is another blockage where might it be? I cant see how to dismantle the airways to check more than the very obvious. Suggestions gratefully accepted.

My Dyson DC14 Animal doesn't have the suction it used to. The piece in the back on the bottom - a flap it appears - stays open now, causing the machine to make a louder noise than usual. At first, if I put my hand on the flap opening it would close, allowing for normal suction. Now, it stays "open" permanently", causing the loss of suction.

My Dyson just stopped sucking up dirt. I have checked all the obvious things like clogs and filters. I noticed when I turn it on, there is a valve on the top of the cannister that opens and you can feel suction from the vent hole. Is this valve malfunctioning, or is it working correctly because something else is malfunctioning?
